The Friends of Maisemore Gardens 

(Separate from Maisemore Council of Management)

For many years the Friends of Maisemore group has run memorable social events, often on the Green, for those who live here.  They run successful days at different times of the year.  There is an ad hoc committee who do the main organisation but most of the Friends make an event successful by helping with things like catering, putting up tents, organising seating, selling tickets, helping with tables and chairs etc. It costs nothing to be a member of Friends! Currently the people who run it are Helen Pettitt at no 37, and Suzy Daniels at No 8. More than 20 others are Friends.  The noticeboard by No 15, owned by Maisemore Gardens, is where information about future events is posted. It will also get coverage in the Maisemore newsletter that is sent out quarterly or so.

Summer picnic

Most years there is a summer lunch party where people pay for a ticket for the food which is prepared by all the Friends.  Sometimes we have had a musician, or a group of instrumentalists and all ages are welcome along. With good weather the Green is a great focus for such events and the lunch party has been known to go on for several hours….


Some years an Easter Egg hunt is organized for the youngsters and visiting grandchildren.  The egg hunters are sent all round Maisemore to find mini eggs. This is followed by coffee and cakes on the green and games for the young. People make donations on the day to pay for the eggs etc.


In recent years the Friends have put up a Christmas tree on the green and organised some drink and mince pies for Maisemore people gathered round the tree with lights. (If anyone is happy to play a piano and has a keyboard to use on the green, then carols would be organized too.  For years carols were the focus of such an event.  Now it’s mainly mulled wine!)


There is a Facebook presence of Maisemore Gardens Community with useful information for people who live here.  Check it out!

Other events

Some Maisemore people organize Boules on the green in the summer and send round information about it and post it on the noticeboard by No 15. There was a Pilates local group that started life during Covid and met outdoors on the Green.  Some people just sit and chat using the benches on the green. So, there is huge potential for social events in this road.  If you live here, please join Friends of Maisemore and help with it all!
